Drama

Step into the radical, chaotic and unapologetically theatrical world of Joan Littlewood, ‘the Mother of Modern Theatre’.

Music Production

Around the House

In this lockdown inspired project participants will create musical materials using household objects and domestic sounds. Using a range of creative audio processing techniques we will transform

everyday sounds from the home into musical sounds. These sounds can be used to accompany existing songs and projects or generate sketches for entirely new compositions. Participants will require a computer capable of basic audio recording (a built-in microphone will do, but an external would be better) and headphones. We will use whatever audio software participants have at their disposal and will also look at various Free / Open Source pieces of software that can be used for the project.
